Salvation

We believe that the Scriptures teach that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace; through the mediatorial offices of the Son of God; who by the appointment of the Father, freely took upon him our nature, yet without sin; honored the divine law by his personal obedience, and by his death made a full atonement for our sins; that having risen from the dead, he is now enthroned in heaven; and uniting in his wonderful person the tenderest sympathies with divine perfections, he is in every way qualified to be a suitable, a compassionate, and an all-sufficient Savior.

What are we saved from? In the Christian doctrine of salvation, we are saved from “wrath,” that is, from God’s judgment of sin (Romans 5:91 Thessalonians 5:9).

Who does the saving? Only God can remove sin and deliver us from sin’s penalty (2 Timothy 1:9Titus 3:5).

How does God save? In the Christian doctrine of salvation, God has rescued us through Christ (John 3:17). (Also see: Romans 5:10Ephesians 1:7). Scripture is clear that salvation is the gracious, undeserved gift of God (Ephesians 2:58) and is only available through faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12).

How do we receive salvation? We are saved by faith (Ephesians 1:13). We must believe—fully trust the Lord Jesus (Romans 1:16). Repentance must follow (Acts 3:19) and calling on the name of the Lord (Romans 10:9-1013).

Salvation is available in Jesus alone (John 14:6Acts 4:12) and is dependent on God alone for provision, assurance, and eternal security.
